How Can a Recruiter Improve Your Behavioral Health Job Search?

Finding a great new behavioral health position can easily turn into a full-time job.
Sorting through all the job postings out there to find one that matches your skills and interests is hard work. Not only that, competition for the best opportunities can be pretty tough, so you have to figure out how to stand out from the crowd.

The good news is, you don’t have to navigate your search alone. When you take on a behavioral health recruiter, they’ll guide you through the process. The best part is, you won’t pay a dime for this career-enhancing assistance, as it’s complimentary for candidates.

Help You Get on Track

If you’ve been aimlessly drifting from one behavioral health position to another, it’s time to add some structure to your career. Your recruiter will inventory your skills and interests to help you get on a path that leads to upward mobility. When you figure out where you’re headed, they’ll work with you to determine if you need to acquire any additional skills and experience, and if so, they’ll help make this happen. Instead of continuing to move from job to job, you’ll start your ascent up the ladder.

Boost Your Candidacy

Recruiters know exactly what employers look for in the ideal behavior health candidate. They’ll help polish your resume to perfection, assist with interview preparation, provide background information on potential employers and help you present yourself as a consummate professional on interview day. Having a career expert in your corner is an invaluable asset, as most candidates have to go it alone. This gives you a clear competitive advantage that will increase your chances of getting hired.

Introduce You to Exclusive Opportunities

Many employers only trust recruiters to fill their behavioral health positions. Consequently, they don’t advertise opportunities on job boards, the company website or any other public place. Your recruiter is the only way you’ll ever know the position is available, so without them, you might miss out on your dream job.

Along with being in the know about these exclusive opportunities, you’ll also benefit from having your recruiter vouch for you. The hiring manager trusts your recruiter, so they know any candidate presented to them must be pretty special.

Provide Interview Feedback

In most cases, when you go on a job interview, you only find out whether hired or not. This isn’t the case when you work with a recruiter, because they have established relationships with many hiring managers. Therefore, they’re able to pick up the phone and discuss your interview after the fact, to find out what went well and what didn’t. Even if you’re not chosen for a certain opportunity, you can use this valuable feedback to improve for your next interview.
